Crying with Santa!! These are my two daughters with Santa at the NE mall in Hurst Texas! Lilly is the one who is crying in both pics. Kendall is 3 years older and never cries!! And if your notice they always have the same Santa year after year, not sure about now but I always liked that about NE mall and my daughter remembered him the following years and in the picture it's the same Santa making it easy when they start asking questions if Santa is real you can go back to the pics and Santa is the same person! Hope to see them on TV, we watch every morning at 6am!! ����� Tonie Whitmer (Mom) ������ Kendall and Lilly Whitmer ������� Watauga, Texas �������
